Medical sources[edit]

Medical sources should be always cited so that they can be easily looked up in PubMED database. Also it is rarely considered good style to "call authorities", eg saying "according to a Cochrane systematic review". The WP portal of medicine has more information on it.

I am very tempted to remove the whole section, the authors of the Cochrane review say that the data is rubbish and it is. Without detailed information what has been tested, proposed mechanism of action and safety information it is more harm than good. The only reason that I do not do it outright is that the article needs overall some more work. Richiez (talk) 11:39, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
